Good afternoon, everyone, it's 2:32pm. It's a sunny afternoon with temps in the mid 60s, and will remain so today. I'm monitoring 17 until 5:29, then I'll come back after my dinner with 25 until midnight or so. If anyone is wondering, yes, I am aware of that extra 5-11 alarm fire that took place in east Avondale today. That's sad to hear of that factory being burned down like that. I'm being told that the fire started overnight and continued into this morning, and even that the fire IS out at this time, there are still quite a few crews that will have to remain on scene for a while, as the building was at least partially destroyed. Here's the article on the fire. If anyone would like to talk about it, please feel free to mention it here. Also, this is most likely the very last day that the current CPD District boundary and radio assignments will be as they are, due to the changes the Department is supposedly making. As far as I know, 25 will be now the 13th District, but the current 14th and 17th Districts will remain the same, including radio assignments. The new 13 will be on a new frequency, so I will have to find out which one tomorrow. The pther changes they are making are adding three more Zones, merging the current 12th and 13th Districts together, and renumbering the current 24th District to the 21st. If anyone knows anything more on the changes than I do, please comment. Here's crime for this afternoon and evening.
